2022 Jaguar F-Type vs. 2022 Porsche 911 comparison highlights:
- The 2022 Porsche 911 and the 2022 Jaguar F-Type are both high-end sports cars that are available in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive
- Although improved over previous years and now only available with a supercharged V8, the 2022 F-Type still can’t compete with the 911
- The 2022 Porsche 911 is significantly more expensive than the F-Type, but it justifies the extra cost with its performance, handling and added luxury
As in previous years, in 2022 the Porsche 911 is the gold standard that all high-end sports car manufacturers are aiming for. And one of the 911’s closest competitors is the Jaguar F-Type, fresh from a few updates and an overhaul to the lineup. But have these revisions made the 2022 F-Type more than just a cheaper 911 alternative? Or is Porsche still waving this sports car standard?

Up until last year, the Jaguar F-Type was available with a variety of turbocharged and supercharged engines. For 2022, however, that’s been pared down to just one: the supercharged 5.0-liter V8. The good news is that the RWD F-Type still exists, albeit in the base P450 form. But when top speed is the name of the game, you need the AWD-only 2022 F-Type R. And with 575 horsepower under its hood, it’s more powerful than any non-turbo 911 or GT3 in the name.
Is the 2022 Jaguar F-Type as Fast as the 2022 Porsche 911?

Speaking of the Porsche 911 GT3 and Turbo 2022, they are not included in this comparison for cost reasons. However, the 911 doesn’t need the power of the turbo or the crazy engine of the GT3 to outperform the F-Type.
Despite its performance deficit, the base 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera hits 60 mph sooner than the P450 F-Type. And that uses Porsche’s official 0-60 estimates, which are on the conservative side. how do we know Spring, car and driver reached 60 mph in 3.3 seconds with a manual Carrera S, 0.7 seconds quicker than Porsche’s claim.
Also, the same Carrera S was just 0.1 seconds slower than the Jaguar F-Type R coupe over the ¼ mile. In both 0-60 and ¼ mile tests, the 2022 911 Carrera GTS smoked the F-Type R. The most powerful F-Type is faster than some 2022 911s, but overall the Porsche sports car is faster.

It may be slower than the 911, but the 2022 Jaguar F-Type has its own charm. Namely, a supercharged V8 soundtrack that “sounds like God pulling the metal ripcord of the world’s biggest, gnarliest Beyblade” in a tunnel. The ride says. And even with its standard active exhaust, the 2022 911 GTS just can’t match its sizzling intensity.
In addition, the 2022 F-Type benefits from the improvements of the 2021 model. To try to tame its snarling sports car a bit, Jaguar gave it new shock absorbers, springs, anti-roll bars and rear knuckles. Also fit wider tires. As a result, the F-Type drives better than before and has more steering feel, car and driver reports.
Unfortunately for the charismatic Jag, it’s still not quite as sharp as the 2022 Porsche 911. Its steering and handling are “acceptable,” but they’re not 911 par. The ride Remarks. Plus, Jaguar’s updates haven’t entirely quashed the F-Type’s steering twitches. And its brakes, while strong, aren’t quite as confidence-inspiring as the 911’s stoppers. Also, the F-Type probably won’t stop as quickly as the Porsche thanks to its heavier curb weight.
In the meantime, the 2022 Porsche 911 is…well, it’s a 911. There’s a dizzying array of models to choose from, sure. But whichever you choose, you’re probably getting the best sports car money can buy. The 2022 911 has communicative steering, solid brakes, impeccable handling and a more comfortable ride than the Jaguar F-Type. In contrast to the F-Type, the 911 also offers a manual.
It’s worth noting that the 2022 Jaguar F-Type is by no means a bad sports car. But in virtually every dynamic test, exhaust noise aside, the 911 is a step above.
Is the Jaguar as luxurious as the Porsche?

Handling wasn’t the only thing Jaguar improved on the F-Type last year. In addition to updating the exterior design and installing LED taillights, Jaguar has also given it a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Plus, even the base P450 comes standard with a 10-inch center touchscreen, navigation, leather upholstery, chrome interior trim, and several advanced driver assistance features. And step all the way up to the F-Type R and you get things like Windsor leather performance seats, keyless entry, an aluminum center console and a power tailgate.
If you look at the equipment list, the F-Type beat the 2022 Porsche 911 in a few areas. For example, the 911 does not have a lane departure warning system and a lane departure warning system as standard. While the 2022 Carrera has eight speakers, the P450 F-Type has 10 as standard. Dig a little deeper, though, and the Porsche is starting to move forward. For one, the touchscreen is slightly larger and it features wireless Apple CarPlay, which isn’t wired like the Jag. Heated front seats are also standard.
Speaking of seating, the 2022 Porsche 911 has rear seats, while the F-Type is a two-seater. In addition, the seats in the 911 are more comfortable on long journeys, The ride Remarks. In addition, the interior of the Jaguar F-Type is noticeably tighter. However, the F-Type Coupé has slightly more cargo space than the 911. However, the trunk of the F-Type Cabriolet is tiny compared to the trunk of the 911 Cabriolet.
Is the extra price for the 2022 Porsche 911 worth it or should you save on the 2022 Jaguar F-Type?

Granted, some extra luxury is almost expected given that the 2022 Porsche 911 costs more than the Jaguar F-Type. The base P450 F-Type RWD coupe starts at $71,300 — about $30,000 less than the 2022 911 Carrera. Meanwhile, the 2022 F-Type R starts at $105,300 and the Carrera S at $117,100. And remember, I’m quoting RWD Carrera prices: AWD costs extra.
But is the 2022 911 worth the extra cost? It depends on your priorities. If you want the last word in high-end sports cars, Porsche’s legendary rear-engine machine beats the F-Type. And once you step into the higher-performing trims, the Jaguar’s value proposition quickly shrinks. Really, it’s a question of whether or not you want that supercharged V8 roar. If you prefer the sound of fury to fury to speed, then go for it.
